THIS is the Goniurellia tridens fruit fly. Those are not drawing on its wings. It’s not that kind of manmade fly art. Nature has given the tridents markings that look a lot like ants. Dr Brigitte Howarth, of Zayed University, noted the Goniurellia tridens in the UAE.  There are 27 kinds of this creature from the tephritidae family.
